Mose Masoe “humbled” for support following career-ending spinal injury

Hull KR prop Mose Masoe says he is going to attack his recovery from his career-ending spinal injury with a “big smile on his face”. 

The 30-year-old was stretchered off the field in the opening minutes of a pre-season game against Wakefield on January 12.

Robins head coach Tony Smith has since confirmed that the Samoa international will not play again, and that it would be a success if he could walk.

In an instagram post sent by his wife Carissa, Masoe said: “Week one done – I would be lying if I said it wasn’t tough, but I’m truly humbled and grateful for all the support from the Hull KR family from the supporters, club staff and my brothers as well as the rugby league community around the world as a whole.

“I can’t begin to express my love and gratitude to everyone that has been helping me and my family at such a hard time we truly are surrounded by amazing people and family.

“Everyone has their own battles that they are fighting themselves and this has become my new battle for now. It’s going to be a long road ahead for me and my little family but it makes it easier for us knowing that we are so blessed with all of your support and well wishes.

“The way I’m going to attack this is with a positive attitude and a big smile on my face. Business as usual.”
